Jamie Heaslip makes his second tour appearance with the British & Irish Lions to follow on from his successful 2009 trip to South Africa.
The Leinster and Ireland back-rower was a smash hit four years ago and was one of just five players to play in every minute of the enthralling three Test-match series. Since then, Jamie has gone from strength to strength, adding two more Heineken Cup winners medals to his first collected in 2009, being nominated for the IRB International Player of the Year award and gaining the Irish captaincy. He took over the latter role from Brian O'Driscoll.
Born in Israel, where his father, Brigadier General Richard Heaslip, was on duty with UNIFIL ( United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon),  Jamie returned to Ireland to play in school at Newbridge College, then local club Naas before moving on to Dublin University. He starred for his country in the 2004 IRB U21 World Cup in Scotland, where Ireland finished as runners-up to New Zealand.
His outstanding performances saw him nominated for the IRB U21 World Player of the Year award. He was called into the Leinster squad in the 2004/05 season and he won his first Ireland cap against the Pacific Islands in the Autumn of 2006, becoming the 1,000th player to represent the Emerald Isle.
He won the RaboDirect PRO12 title with Leinster in 2008 and was a member of the victorious Ireland team that claimed the 2009 RBS 6 Nations Championship and Grand Slam before touring to South Africa with the Lions.
As well as his IRB International Player of the Year nomination, Jamie's consistent performances have put him into the Celtic League Dream Team for four successive seasons. He captained Leinster in their Amlin Challenge Cup final win over Stade Francais Paris.
